View Entire Article

The newest addition to the Van Cleef & Arpels Perlée collection is the Perlée Couleurs long necklace. Transformation is one of the maison’s signature features, and the necklace does just that with detachable rings in coral, onyx, turquoise, and yellow gold that can be mixed and matched to your heart’s desire. And with layered necklaces being the new way to make a statement, build your own layered look by adding the Perlée Couleurs pendant. And who’s to say you should stop there? The range extends to rings and bracelets that are ideal for stacking.

Introduced in 2008, the Perlée collection has always been about geometry, colour, and playfulness. The Perlée beads have their origins in a granulation technique used in Egyptian and Greek jewellery in the Middle Ages in which tiny gold beads are soldered together to create abstract or figurative shapes. Van Cleef & Arpels modernized the technique, and with varying sizes of gold beads along with an assortment of designs, the Perlée collection epitomizes the beauty of beaded jewellery.
